All about bicycles, electric-assisted bikes, technology and safety in the press

The most common safety risks that we come across in our daily work around bicycle safety, technology and operating instructions are also published by us in articles in the leading German special-interest magazines TOUR (Europe's road bike magazine no. 1), BIKE (Europe's mountain bike magazine no. 1), MYBIKE and EMTB in order to make this information, which is important for the industry, available to a wider public.

For many years now, the Eurobike Show Daily, trade fair magazine of the annual Eurobike Show, has also given us the opportunity to publish our view of major developments in the cycle industry in full-page articles.

We also speak regularly in independent expert presentations about all areas of bicycle technology and the bicycle market. In addition, we are quoted by further special-interest magazines of the industry and the trade as well as increasingly by radio and television in their media reports, which shows us that we are spot on with our advice. The section "News" informs you about the latest news from our specialist areas. The reports and publications of this section are listed chronologically or according to areas of interest.

Bicycle tour falls through due to rain

No more than 50 cyclists started the popular tour organised by Ludwigsburg’s cycling club RSC-Komet.

The weather had not meant well for the event. In the early morning already, the sky had opened its sluices and made good abundantly for what the soils had been longing for for weeks: Water, water and water again bringing along a lot of wind. As a consequence lots of interested cyclists lacked the courage to stand up to the weather.

In spite of that, some few cyclists threw them into the weather battle and cycled the tour under these adverse conditions. According to Ludwigsburg’s cycling club RSC Komet just under ten percent of the number of cyclists calculated over the years had registered for the tour in the end. As in the past years, the event organiser had planned to receive 500 cyclists from far and wide, riding the popular distances over 80 or 125 kilometres. This year, the winning team with the biggest number of participants was significantly below standard. The team consisted of nine male and one female cyclists on road bikes sent by the Ludwigsburg company Zedler - Institut für Fahrradtechnik und Sicherheit.

During the prize awarding ceremony at the club house in Eglosheim, the sun came out again so that Petra Grunewald as tour rider of the Zedler company was able to receive the glass winners trophy from the former RSC-Komet chairman Frank Schwartz. All in all, this year’s tour fell through, without being cancelled completely.
